Pandemic Effects on Semiconductors 2021

Pandemic Effects on Semiconductor Supply Chains and Workforces 2021 - Insights from KPMG and GSA The COVID-19 pandemic forced significant changes on the semiconductor industry. After the shutdowns of early 2020, strong demand collided with constrained capacity. Semiconductor companies had to adjust supply chains and, like other employers, adapt to the new reality of remote work. Surveys conducted by KPMG and the Global Semiconductor Alliance during 2020 and 2021 illuminate important themes that characterize the industry response: Most semiconductor executives have invested in programs that improved employees’ safety and productivity. Despite income lost due to Read More
